Hi. I'm Blake.
I'm an accountant who specializes in cloud accounting technology.
I work at FloQast. We're a bunch of accountants who left our debits and credits to make close management software that helps accounting teams close the books faster and more accurately.
Before that, I was a Manager in the Outsourced Finance & Accounting division of the Consulting practice at Armanino LLP, the largest California-based CPA & Consulting firm and a top 25 firm nationwide.
I was honored to be named to CPA Practice Advisor's 40 Under 40 list for the accounting profession in 2016 and 2017.
My accounting career began in 2012 when I founded Cloudsourced Accounting, an online bookkeeping and cloud integration firm that grew to serve hundreds of clients. We were one of the first Xero bookkeeping partners in the United States and led the way in leveraging cloud accounting and online project collaboration tools to provide our clients with a superior customer experience.
Cloudsourced Accounting was acquired by HPC (formerly Harshman Phillips & Company) in 2015. After the purchase, I served as Director of Technology and Marketing for HPC, then later worked with cloud accounting software developer Xero as a "Xero Ambassador" for the U.S. West Coast.
